The Taurus 809 pistol is a polymer handgun that offers a lot of value for a modest price. Â The new pistol is chambered in 9mm and uses 17 round magazines. Â This gun has a 4″ barrel and weighs slightly more than 30 ounces when it is unloaded.
The gun is an odd mix of actions. Â Instead of being a traditional double-action/single-action, it is a single-action/double-action pistol. Â This means the first and all subsequent shots are a light, short single action trigger pull. Â However, should the gun ever fail to fire, the next shot will be a double action trigger pull. Â Why, might you ask, is that?
